Medical Malpractice is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States.

Most people are unaware of this shocking statistic. To raise awareness of this growing issue within the healthcare system and provide support for those affected, our very own Allen Tittle decided to take action. In 2019, he created the Allen Tittle Medical Malpractice Scholarship.
